Mr. Dick Quotes in David Copperfield (1935)


Mr. Dick Quotes:

  • Mr. Dick: Do you remember the date that King Charles I had his head cut off?

    David Copperfield as a child: I believe it was in the year 1649.

    Mr. Dick: Well, so the books say, but I don't see how that can be. Because if it was so long ago how could the trouble have got out of his head when it was cut off and into mine?

    David Copperfield as a child: I'm sure I don't know.

  • Uriah Heep: [runs to the wall safe, opens it] The books! The books are gone! Who stole the books?

    Mr. Micawber: I did, when you gave me the keys this morning as usual.

    David - the Man: Don't be uneasy, they're in my possession now. I'll take care of them.

    Uriah Heep: Oh, so you receive stolen goods now, do you?

    David - the Man: In these circumstances, yes.
